A 1966 commercial for Vanquish pain reliever.
Topics: Classic TV Commercial, 1966, 1960s, Advertising, Advertisement
A classic 1966 commercial break. Features two ads: a humorous spot for Clark's Teaberry Gum, and a dull ad for Persona Razor Blades. These commercials were probably originally in color but these copies are B&W.

A somewhat humorous commercial for Kellogg's corn flakes with Jimmy Durante. This United States commercial is taken from a 1966 TV-episode. This commercial uses various look-alike sets for comic effect. Sorry for the poor quality of the color.

A complete commercial break from 1966, for Kindess hair conditioner and Ammens powder. No idea if the car crash footage is public domain or not.

A 1966 commercial for Marlboro Cigarettes, complete with cowboys. Do NOT upload this to YouTube, as despite being public domain, some losers will claim copyright on it and have your account suspended. Probably a B&W copy of a color commercial.

Another classic 1960s commercial, this time for Colgate Toothpaste. "Mrs Wallace" is worried about her son's cavities while her at some school event, when some random guy tells them about how Colgate Toothpaste "is the leader in reducing cavitives". Cute, corny, clever, but somewhat cloying, this commercial has one problem: the color is gone (did it exist?) and is simply tinted-blue.

A 1965 sponsor tag for the Polaroid Swinger camera.  Not sure if I should have uploaded this....the episode it comes from ("Kris and the Queen") has already been uploaded....but maybe someone might enjoy this commercial? Hey, uploading stuff is an addiction to me, I can't help it.....

An old commercial, probably from 1965, for a skin cleanser called "Noxzema". This commercial is as average as a mid-1960's commercial can get. In other words, a standard, ordidary, run-of-the-mill skin-care commercial. Nothing special. At all.

A classic promo for "The FBI", a television series which ran from 1965 to 1974. The series itself cannot be uploaded, but this promo should be fine.  A slightly different version has also been uploaded: https://archive.org/details/1965PromoForTheFBI

Commercial for "Marineland Carnival," a one-shot special featuring The Munsters which aired on April 19, 1965.  To date, no surviving prints of this TV special have surfaced... but Orson Welles' long-lost first film was eventually found, so never say never.

A 1965 British "public information film" aimed at motorcycle and motor scooter riders. It advises people to wear a safety helmet. This kind of short was shown on TV on both the BBC and ITV to fill in gaps in the schedule, and thus are known as "fillers".  Produced by unknown production company for the Central Office of Information.

A classic television commercial break, probably from 1965. Promotes "New Dawn" (for hair colouring) and Subdue shampoo. This aired during a CBS show. To be honest, neither is among the better commercials of the period, due to low production values.

A classic 1965 TV commercial for a product called "Arrid Deodorant". This commercial distictly aims the product at people with an active life than presumably, results in a lot of sweat (and thus smell).

A classic U.S. commercial for Sucrets sore throat lozenges. It advises that one can even smoke after taking them.  I took this from what I believe to be a 1965 rebroadcast of a 1952 TV episode, so I presume this ad is from 1965, however I could be mistaken on the year.

A classic sponsor tag for 007 Aftershave lotion. Probably from 1965, but forgive me if I'm mistaken on that.  No sign of a copyright notice, so I presume this is public domain under U.S. copyright law. [the show I took this from lacked a copyright notice as well.....it's from "Ozzie and Harriet", and I probably uploaded the episode years ago. I've been "dumpster diving" on my external hard drive, and finding some interesting stuff].

Satchmo stars in this 1960s commercial for Suzy Cute dolls and accessories. Below are also two mp3s from the recording sessions, lifted from vinylrecordstocd.com . The regular commercial has a much clearer audio mix, and Armstrong seems to have been having fun jamming with the band, which is much more prominently heard in the longer cut. According to vinylrecordstocd's site (click the link above for more info), only two copies of the vinyl version are known to exist.
